📒Love In The Time Of Cholera ✍ Gabriel Garcia Marquez
📝Love in the Time of Cholera Book Synopsis : From Publishers Weekly In this chronicle of a unique love triangle, the Nobel laureate's trademark "ironic vision and luminous evocation of South America" persist. "It is a fully mature novel in scope and perspective, flawlessly translated, as rich in ideas as in humanity," praised PW . 250,000 first printing. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal While delivering a message to her father, Florentino Ariza spots the barely pubescent Fermina Daza and immediately falls in love. What follows is the story of a passion that extends over 50 years, as Fermina is courted solely by letter, decisively rejects her suitor when he first speaks, and then joins the urbane Dr. Juvenal Urbino, much above her station, in a marriage initially loveless but ultimately remarkable in its strength. Florentino remains faithful in his fashion; paralleling the tale of the marriage is that of his numerous liaisons, all ultimately without the depth of love he again declares at Urbino's death. In substance and style not as fantastical, as mythologizing, as the previous works, this is a compelling exploration of the myths we make of love. Highly recommended.

'An ash-grey dog with a white blaze on its forehead burst on to the rough terrain of the market on the first Sunday of December' When a witch doctor appears on the Marquis de Casalduero's doorstep prophesising a plague of rabies in the Colombian seaport, he dismisses her claims - until he hears that his young daughter, Sierva Maria, was one of four people bitten by a rabid dog, and the only one to survive. Sierva Maria appears completely unscathed - but as rumours of the plague spread, the Marquis and his wife wonder at her continuing good health. In a town consumed by superstition, it's not long before they, and everyone else, put her survival down to a demonic possession and begin to see her supernatural powers as the cause of the town's woes.

📒The Autumn Of The Patriarch ✍ Gabriel Garcia Marquez
📝The Autumn of the Patriarch Book Synopsis : Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, explores the loneliness of power in Autumn of the Patriarch. 'Over the weekend the vultures got into the presidential palace by pecking through the screens on the balcony windows and the flapping of their wings stirred up the stagnant time inside' As the citizens of an unnamed Caribbean nation creep through dusty corridors in search of their tyrannical leader, they cannot comprehend that the frail and withered man lying dead on the floor can be the self-styled General of the Universe. Their arrogant, manically violent leader, known for serving up traitors to dinner guests and drowning young children at sea, can surely not die the humiliating death of a mere mortal? Tracing the demands of a man whose egocentric excesses mask the loneliness of isolation and whose lies have become so ingrained that they are indistinguishable from truth, Marquez has created a fantastical portrait of despotism that rings with an air of reality. 'Delights with its quirky humanity and black humour and impresses by its total originality' Vogue 'Captures perfectly the moral squalor and political paralysis that enshrouds a society awaiting the death of a long-term dictator' Guardian 'Marquez writes in this lyrical, magical language that no-one else can do' Salman Rushdie
📒Summarized And Analyzed Love In The Time Of Cholera ✍ Student World
📝Summarized and Analyzed Love in the Time of Cholera Book Synopsis : This great novel covers a long time period, investigating several significant themes. Death, love, time, society, fear of ageing, and obviously cholera are some of the most important themes.The influence of the oral traditions of story-telling and the magical realism is quite apparent on this novel, like most of the other works by the author. "One Hundred Years of Solitude," the most significant work by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, can be taken as the first example of the use of magical realism by the author. It was a remarkable novel. The magical realism was highly admired by critics, readers, and reviewers. Unlike the other novels that investigate the theme of love from a highly conventional angle, this novel, "Love in the Time of Cholera," deals very differently with this theme. The novel has an unorthodox structure. The writing style is definitely not traditional. Going through the story, the reader can feel as if he or she were listening to a story, probably because of the effect of the oral tradition of the story-telling on the narrative.

📒Africa In The Time Of Cholera ✍ Myron Echenberg
📝Africa in the Time of Cholera Book Synopsis : This book combines evidence from natural and social sciences to examine the impact on Africa of seven cholera pandemics since 1817, particularly the current impact of cholera on such major countries as Senegal, Angola, Mozambique, Congo, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Myron Echenberg highlights the irony that this once-terrible scourge, having receded from most of the globe, now kills thousands of Africans annually - Africa now accounts for more than 90 percent of the world's cases and deaths - and leaves many more with severe developmental impairment. Responsibility for the suffering caused is shared by Western lending and health institutions and by often venal and incompetent African leadership. If the threat of this old scourge is addressed with more urgency, great progress in the public health of Africans can be achieved.

📒An Italian Holiday ✍ Maeve Haran
📝An Italian Holiday Book Synopsis : Sunshine, warmth, lemon blossom . . . Springtime in glorious Southern Italy can go to your head. Especially if you are escaping an overbearing husband, the embarrassingly public loss of your company, an interfering mother who still tries to run your life or the pain of a husband's affair with a girl young enough to be his daughter.

Packed with memorable characters - from the acid-tongued Grand Old Man of Modern Art who lives next door - to the aspiring gigolo who thinks nothing of a forty year age gap, Maeve Haran's new novel is a witty and entertaining reminder of why going a little mad in the sun can sometimes be exactly what you need.

📒Love In The Time Of Cholera ✍ Frederic P. Miller
📝Love in the Time of Cholera Book Synopsis : Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Love in the Time of Cholera (Spanish: El amor en los tiempos del cólera) is a novel by Nobel Prize winning Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez that was first published in Spanish in 1985, with an English translation released in 1988 by Alfred A. Knopf. An English-language film adaptation was released in 2007. The main female character in the novel, Fermina Daza, is the strong axis around which the story revolves. Fermina easily rejects Florentino Ariza in their youth when she realizes the naïveté of their first romance, and she weds Juvenal Urbino at the age of 21, the deadline she had set for herself, ultimately because he seemed to be able to offer security and love to her. Urbino is a medical doctor devoted to science, modernity, and order and progress. He is committed to the eradication of cholera and to the promotion of public works. He is a rational man whose life is organized precisely and who values his importance and reputation in society to the utmost.
